Golden State Warriors co-owner Chamath Palihapitiya stated that nobody cares about the Uyghurs’ genocide in China.
Chamath made his comments during the All In podcast when a co-host of the show brought up the topic of the Uyghurs.
Chamath went on to double down on his statement. He said it’s below his line and not something he cares about at all. He then went on to say the United States needs to clean up its own mess before it cleans up China’s.
Chamath’s comments come as no surprise, considering the NBA’s biggest market is China. Previously, Houston Rockets owner Daryl Morey tweeted out his support for Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.
In response, China banned all Rocket’s games until Morey decided to resign, due to backlash from the league against his free speech.
Owner of the @warriors🏀 says he doesn’t care about the Uyghurs.
The conversation goes downhill from there.@chamath…

Lebron James even commented on the situation. He stated Daryl Morey was misinformed about the situation in China. So, it’s quite clear the NBA is in support of communist China.
In Chamath’s own words, the profits they receive from China are greater than advocating for human rights.
Chamath is a Mega Donor to Biden
Chamath reportedly donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Biden’s 2020 campaign run.
This goes to show that pro-communist China supporters are also Biden supporters. Chamath not only donated to the Biden campaign, but also has a close business relationship with Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Blinken served as an advisor at Chamth’s company Social Capital in 2017. In a statement, the Warriors didn’t condemn China, but instead just stated that Chamth’s comments do not reflect the organization’s opinion on any given subject.
Chamath Palihapitiya didn't make a mistake. He said what he believes and what is in the heart of many of these liberal billionaires.
They're okay with genocide—as long as they can make a buck from the Chinese Communist Party.

China is Harvesting Uyghurs’ Organs While They’re Alive
A UN report concluded the CCP is even harvesting organs of Uyghur Muslims, Falun Gong practitioners, Christians, and Tibetans.
The UN has also concluded the CCP will send doctors to places where ethnic and religious minorities live to test their blood and exam their organs. After the examination, their organ’s condition and blood type are placed in the database.
Once placed in the database, the CCP will wait till someone is in need of organs and then kill a Christian or Muslim, in order to take their organs.
Hearts, livers, eyes, kidneys, and other organs have been taken out of ethnic groups while they are still alive. This is the kind of sickening action the CCP is taking, but the NBA doesn’t care because they have a billion-dollar market in China.
China is set to host the Winter Olympics, and as of yet, athletes from all over the world will display their talents in the communist country of China.
The Olympic Committee doesn’t seem too concerned over China’s human rights issues either. They are just not vocal like Chamath.
